Not really. At least not a lot.

Most of the time yes. Why?

Stalin and Mao both murdered many more than Hitler...but it is always Hitler that creates the uproar. Maybe it is the disproportionate amount of Jews in the media. I find the Che Guevera gear offensive...but you still see plenty of it.

I knew about it, but that's because I enjoyed reading about world history that wasn't exclusively American. That was not something they appreciated me bringing up, neither was the American concentration camps or the bombing of US citizens by its own government in Tulsa OK and Philly. I wasn't very popular with my history teachers.

But I agree...most people (especially in Western Areas) have a very myopic world view that their atrocities are the only ones that matter and should be known throughout the world.

No, Mao did not murder a lot of people. I am tired of rumors like that.

Yes, his bad policies caused a huge number of people to starve, but he did not order to kill them.
In fact, he did not even kill his political enemies directly. He used the "cultural revolution" to eliminate them.

Sounds ridiculous,huh? It's too much to ask.

The only reason German Nazi got a worse rep than Japan or any other fascist regime is that Jews control all the important media in the U.S. Things would look much different if Chinese gained the control of media instead of Jews.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Jews, I don't hate Germany, I don't hate Japan.

History is just history. We have bigger threats than Nazi these days, I'm not saying Nazi isn't evil, but we have more important things to worry about. Look at ghettos in Paris and Londonistan!

Don't forget the historical fact that massive numbers of Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians, and so many other ethnic minorities were massacred by the Chinese on their way to conquest. Comparing the Chinese and Jews is just totally absurd. They just don't share the same boat at all.
